Wisdom Wednesday “Hold Your Peace”

Wisdom Wednesday “Hold Your Peace”

It is very common that people who have experienced God’s power work in their lives are extremely excited to share with other people. In fact, some have gone so far as to force their testimonies and beliefs on others. The problem with this is that some people aren’t ready or willing to hear what they have to say. Others just may not be in the place to accept of adopt that way of living. Because of this, it is wise to hold your peace.

It is good that you want to share your experience and God’s word with other people. It is also great that you don’t have to say a word for people to see and understand God’s favor and grace on your life. Your life tells people more about you than you can ever really say in words. I know that it is difficult to hold your peace, when God has been so instrumental in your life, but after this week’s lesson, maybe you’ll think differently.

Wisdom Wednesday “Hold Your Peace”

Our Wisdom Wednesday message for this week came from Proverbs 23:9, which states “Speak not in the ears of a fool: for he will despise the wisdom of thy words.” I took this to mean that we should gain wisdom and knowledge of the scriptures, but we should be very selective about who we share that wisdom with. Someone who doesn’t believe will diminish and hate what you are saying, because it isn’t meant for that person to understand things of the Spirit.

The bible tells us, in other areas, just how we should regard those who are considered fools. According to the dictionary, a fool is a person who acts unwisely or imprudently; a silly person. From the definition alone, we can gather that a fool doesn’t do well with wisdom. According to the bible, a fool is one who says that there is no God. (Psalms 53:1)

Watch this week’s episode (Wisdom Wednesday “Hold Your Peace”) to see what my advice is for dealing with fools, when it comes to sharing the word of God.

Why Are Men Of God So Sexy

Why Are Men Of God So Sexy

Why do women find spiritual men so irresistibly sexy? I can recall a few times in my own life where I witnessed a man of God display his love for the creator, and he instantly grew 10x more attractive to me. I know I’m not the only one in this boat, but I may be the only one talking about this. I hear about women throwing themselves at ministers and other men within the church quite often, and as scary as that may sound, I just had to know…Why? Read more
